Help Bring Technology to Third Grade!
My students need a projector that can display visuals, informative web sites and videos to the entire class.
Have you ever seen a child's face when they are experiencing something for the first time? A projector in our classroom would allow me to show my students unlimited possibilities and create new experiences!
I am a 3rd grade teacher in an urban neighborhood at a K-4 elementary public school.
My class is very diverse in learning abilities, ethnicities, and languages. Due to their families' economic status or limited time in the country, many of my students lack prior knowledge and experience due to their limited exposures. My students struggle in reading comprehension due this limitations which impact their performance in other subject areas. Only about a handful of my students have computers to use at home and we are only limited to one in the classroom. Between home and school, the students are very limited to technology, which is becoming more and more a necessity in modern day classrooms. Our classroom is falling behind in this digital age as technology has become more influential in student learning.
I am requesting a DLP projector that would enable me to project images, videos, web sites, and review games through a personal lap top to a pull down projection screen in the classroom. This would grant me unlimited access to pulling up images to enrich comprehension in all subject areas. I also plan to use this projector to show education videos and use educational websites for lessons or extension activities.
Many of my students lack the ability to make connections or comprehend certain texts due to being an English language learner or having limited prior experiences.
This is one of the greatest challenges we face as we continue to raise standards and expectations for standardized tests. The projector would be an incredible tool that would allow me to expand my students' knowledge.
